The first edition, published in 1951, was limited to the subject of unipolar electrocardiography and did an excellent job in making a difficult subject clear and understandable. In this edition sections on cardiac arrhythmia, myocarditis, congenital heart disease, hyperventilation, and the two-step (Master) exercise test have been added. This new material has increased the size of the book until it can scarcely be considered a monograph any longer but is approaching the size of a textbook. Very little change has been made in the original section of the book. The bibliography contains no reference later than 1950. Over 100 pages of illustrative electrocardiograms are included. This book is recommended for reference for cardiologists and internists with a special interest in diseases of the heart.
